It was an okay Hefeweizen. As of this rating the Gernan’s have definitely mastered the art of a good Hefe. This was a decent attempt but in general I found it to be a little weak and lacking in flavour. But I will say it was a decent beer.
Pours cloudy white with ok head and lacing. Finishes with some bubblegum. Not a lot going on here. Some bread yeast aroma. On tap at DC Beer Festival. Ron (3959) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle. Thin white head of fine bubbles. Minimal carbonation. Nice aroma with a bit of bready malts, some pineapple, sweet candy and spices. Color is a medium golden orange. Light and refreshing with more fruit flavors banana, light spices and crisp wheat notes. Finishes clean and slightly dry. A decent Hefe. dlovell2 (2140) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Cloudy Golden color with white head. Yeasty bananna aroma. Wheat flavor quickly taken over with bananna and citrus finish. Not my favorite. Niko100 (2913) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2011

From a bottle poured a hazy straw color with a lot of head. Citrus banana flavor with a quick finish.

The beer reminded me of a lager, with not enough of the distinct flavors of a hefeweizen. The coloring was good and it wasn’t a bad beer, just not what I expected. Jblauvs (1358) - Chester, Vermont, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Snagged this as part of a mixed long trail sixer even though its a bit past season.. Cloudy Mango pour with a slight offwhite head. Aroma is mostly banana and spice but a hint of sweet caramel malt is evident. Flavor is overripe banana that tends to be a little overpower, not leaving much room for other flavors. Some spiciness, and the finish is a bit dry but overall a little too heavy handed on the fruiting and not enough yeastiness and wheat. OK

Apricot pour with some haze and a one and a half finger white head. Aroma is loaded with banana and clove with a bit of pepper and coriander. Flavor is overly banana ridden with some dryish sweet malt and tropical fruitiness. Palate is smooth, semi-flat after a few sips, and retains a clean wet finish. A yummy summer quaff. craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Opaque yellow pour with small white head. Aroma holds tons of spice, with cinnamon, apple, pepper, and citrus and yeast notes. Flavor is much of the same, although banana, nectar, mango, and guava stand out, along with the aforementioned spice and yeast. Palate is light, as hefeweizens generally are, but still has some body to it. Quite a pleasant surprise; not a stunning beer, but a really solid session brew.

Bottle. Poured straw yellow with a thin white head. Aroma was pretty standard though not as stong as I expected. Body was light, flavor was like a light hefe. Refreshing at the least.
